    A lot of men, especially men that are 50+ always tend to look down their noses at working women. DH's uncle fully believes that the mother should be home till their at least five.
    we have a 40 odd year old guy at work (hes gay) and hes very against mothers working. women in general actually. women are there to provide for men. no other reason. they should be at home. or working doing stuff like house keepers/cooks etc for men who "need to work" he was nice until he found out i had two young kids, now he hates me lol

    Awesome thread!! So nice to be reminded that we working mums are not alone, I think any one who can jugle the kids a house and a job deserve a big thumbs up.

    Rule 23: When you get asked the question "What do your children do when you're at work?", you MUST smile sweetly and answer with every detail of your care arrangements. It doesn't matter how many times you've been asked this, or how sick you are of the question, or how irritated you are with the implied sexism, or that a man is NEVER asked this questions ...

    wow, it's been at least 6 months since I gave a sarcastic answer to that and was told, by my manager: 'That's not fair, he was just asking a perfectly valid question' ... and I'm still p'd off about it.

    Rule 24 Seeing that you only work part-time, do not make any appointment during your work hours - even if the only time the teacher/dentist/specialist etc can see you is during your normal working hours. Steve in accounting has a regular 2.45pm appointment of Fridays with his chiropodist because he works full time. All appointments are to be made during your FREE time - ie the hours when you do not work...

    Rule 25 It is expected that your house will be hospital-bleach/display-home clean at all times - after-all there is no-one there during the day to make a mess.

    Rule 26 If you are immaculately dressed and coiffered it's because you are a not real mummy, you are self centred - hence the reason you work and don't spend time with your child

    Rule 27 If you don't wear makeup, have the latest hairdo and clothes, it's because you have lost your self-respect, how could you walk out the house work looking like that???...

    Rule 20a- I don't see why you need to 'waste money' on a house cleaner. I (DP) work and study just the same as you and the house is always clean.
    That's because I've just come home early to not study, not spend time with DS but CLEAN! And now- I am totally BUGGERED! And I still have to get dinner ready, bathe DS and clean up- than get up at 5 in the morning to study for an hour and get DS ready and I also need to make up that hour of work from yesterday!

    ROFL I love this thread!

    Rule 28: It will automatically be assumed that your child's child care worker is a neglectful, evil bitter old woman or a young idiotic air head, when in fact she is a well educated professional that loves her job and your child adores her.
